Sometimes I find it amusing what people find interesting. After a box run I took a bunch of leftover stock and made a “scrap” box to hold something small on my desk at work. It ended up being my rubber band box. I have received more attention over this box than I would have ever expected with multiple offers to purchase it. Weird. But is does make a nice example of what some different woods look like for comparison. Resulted in a couple of custom box requests.
The box is made from leftover Yellowheart, Purpleheart, Maple and Padauk. Through Dovetail joinery using a Leigh jig. The lid is also from left over veneer scrap so I tried my hand at creating veneer seams. The joints turned out way better than I expected for my first shot. The veneers are Quilted Maple, Black Walnut Burl on the outside and Quilted Bubinga and Pomelle Sapele on the inside.
Box size is 6”L x 4”W x 2 5/8”T.
Red leather lined bottom and simple surface installed hinges.
